Michael Ondaatje, Carol Shields, and Gail Anderson-Dargatz are among the winners of the CBC Literary Award who have gone on to become some of the biggest names in Canadian literature. They and other past winners are included in Emergent Voices. For over twenty years, Robert Weaver has coordinated one of Canada's most important literary awards for emerging writers, the CBC Canadian Literary Awards. Weaver founded the awards and has been tireless in promoting them.


As well as organizing the Canadian Literary Competition, Robert Weaver was fiction editor of Saturday Night. He edited many anthologies, including six editions of Canadian Short Stories and The Anthology Anthology: A Selection from Thirty Years of CBC Radio's "Anthology". He co-edited two editions each of The Oxford Anthology of Canadian Literature and The Oxford Book of Canadian Short Stories in English, and he was the editor of Mavis Gallant's collection The End of the World and Other Stories.
